The Oslomarka (peri-urban forest) is the quintessential public space in Oslo and an object of cultural construct. It is designed and managed to create a notion of a natural forest through actively limiting clear geometry and linear planting patterns. The project aims to embrace the artificiality of the forest. Thus if we can consider that forestry is an act of design, what other spatial opportunities does the forest provide? The project uses the industrial action of timber extraction as a design tool to create bosquets, open air rooms in the forest. The rooms increase formal legibility while embracing the environmental conditions of the site. Set within the rooms, a new set of objects are placed, making for a new cultural sceneography.
